Pakistani-Canadian Youtuber Shahveer Jafry recently passed some controversial remarks regarding the Pakistani drama industry and people think he hasn’t been watching the right kind of dramas. Shahveer tweeted that Pakistani dramas revolve mainly around saas-bahu issues and that he was thinking of coming up with an unconventional web-series in Pakistan that will change the drama industry completely.
Here is what the Youtuber said: “Pakistani’s dramas are good but they all revolve around SAAS BAHU. I think I’m going to have to think of creating a new unconventional web-series in Pakistan and change the entire TV DRAMA industry.” — Shahveer Jafry (@shahveerjaay) June 25, 2019
The tweet caught the attention of online publications and when they shared it on their platforms, Pakistani drama viewers came out in support of our drama industry. They were of the view that his statement was wrong and generic and that he had been watching the wrong dramas or he might have confused it with the Indian dramas.
When Imran Ashraf saw this statement shared by Diva Magazine on Instagram, he came out in full support of the Pakistani drama industry and schooled Shahveer about how he was wrong in his statement. Beginning with a witty response ‘Mein Sadqay Jaoon’, Imran went on to make Shahveer realize how much work he has undermined with these words. Here is how the conversation went on between the Ranjha Ranjha Kardi star and Shahveer Jafry:
No doubt, we have one of the finest drama industries and it is not without reason that our dramas are appreciated and loved by people all over the world. Dramas like Ranjha Ranjha Kardi, Yaqeen ka Safar, Meri Gurya, Zindagi Gulzar Hai, Kankar, Dar si Jati Hai Sila, Inkaar, Udaari, and more recently Ishq Zahe Naseeb are some examples of the versatility of topics that our drama industry has handled in the recent few years. Hence, such a sweeping statement by Shahveer was replied to in the right manner by Imran Ashraf.
